Villa for rent in Tuscany
La Casa di Livizzano
Sleeps 7 with private pool -- Free WiFi
This privately owned villa is in a beautiful position, and has shops and a trattoria and bar only five minutes walk away. It is set on the edge of a rural village in Northern Tuscany which is great walking country, but where you are also within reach of the famous cities and sites. A south facing terrace with fabulous views looks out over a private pool, while a shady loggia with a BBQ offers al fresco dining. With its lovely narrow cobbled streets, the hamlet of Livizzano is virtually a car free zone but car parking is available in the village car park about 150 metres away. The villa has free wifi and internet access.
This large secluded 3-storey 100 year old villa can sleep up to 7 people and 2 babies. There are two bedrooms with king size double beds, one with twin beds and one single room. The twin room is accessed via the single room. There are two bathrooms with wc, large entrance hall with cloakroom/wc; large open plan kitchen and sitting room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on the top and lower ground floor, with the main living space on the ground floor, a very useful layout for two couples sharing. The villa has central heating, and the hot water supply and swimming pool water is also boosted by solar heating panels.
The villa stands at about 500 metres above sea level. There are lots of pictures of the villa and its views on the right hand menu of this home page.

Lucca, a graceful medieval walled town, one hour away is a delight to visit. Florence itself is only 1.5 hours’ drive away. The Garfagnana national park is fabulous walking country. The nearest beach is at Viareggio; about 90 minutes away, and there is skiing at Abetone, 50 minutes away.
